Yeah,lots of pretty,somewhat like minded ladies,a less harsh attitude as to what I was hearing,although it was obvious it wasn't what it was,we held out some hope that things would get better.It was much different in 80'-81',the vibe around the scene was casual,and a lot less cluttered with people with a different agenda for being there,most folks went to go to the show and get off on the music,not the scene or drug of choice for the night,this started to change around 82'-83' for me,not with the touch heads,it was a gradual decline.You could do 30-40 shows a year just doing the east coast spring tour,a leg of the summer tour and east coast fall tour.I found an interest in free jazz around 83' and backed off on the GD,the last time I enjoyed their music live in the 80's was the 6 Dylan shows,it wasn't great ,but it was 6 shows with fuckin' Bob Dylan,I got chills each and every night,they played Joey and Frankie Lee and Judas Priest,how critical can you be.After those I don't have a single pleasant memory until the David Murray MSG show in 93'.
